Gertrude Contemporary is Australia’s leading incubator for the development and presentation of contemporary art. Gertrude has long enjoyed a strong graphic legacy, originated by Studio Ongarato in 2010. In evolving the brand for a modern and increasingly digital audience, there was a need to update its identity system for broader outcomes and reflect Gertrude’s position alongside its local and international peers. In addition to a refreshed typographic palette, I created a dynamic grid system inspired by the geometric underpinnings of the original identity and the architectural features of both gallery spaces. The new system provides a structure on which content can be contained or suspended, evoking the possibilities present across its many platforms and programs.

The new website, built on a headless CMS by Melbourne-based Sorry Company, revitalises and restructures the presentation of Gertrude’s impressive 35 year program archive within the context of the new brand. It provides users with new ways of navigating through the archive by using Gertrude’s studio artists as the technical and ideological link between all program content.
